big trident

During the summer tis trident maple could grow freely. Now I cut it back severely. In three weeks there will already be new growth. This will harden before the winter. This week is the last week to do this. if one cuts later the new growth will not have enough time to harden and will not survive the winter.

I really like the uro. Did you do those?

No,

they came like this from Japan. Such trees with large holes are considered almost WORTHLESS in Japan. They are sold for cheap to silly ignorant foreigners who don't know that holes on deciduous trees are ugly. Well, I love to take these trees. I make a feature of the holes. I think they are much more interesting than the boring perfect trees.

In fact how much is "sold for cheap"?

Sold for cheap is relative. A trident with large holes costs about a quarter to a third of the same tree without holes. So simply you can get it for example for 2,000 instead of for 6,000. To me and to many others the holes create interest. So these trees to me are worth more than the uniform fat volcano-trees.
